What is it about?

(Blurb from GoodReads)

Lexi Jardine may be a thief, but she’s not stupid. When a crooked fireshaper wants her to steal a ring from the boss of his order, she knows it’s a one-way ticket to sleeping with the fishes. Her answer is to drop off the face of the earth.

Safely hidden in a quiet seaside town, she just needs to keep her head down and pretend to be a regular human. Since her only magical ability is the power to control animals, that should be easy, right?

Then a new fireshaper shows up in town. He’s hot as hell but oddly hostile. With his suspicious eyes watching her every move, her safe haven starts feeling more like a trap. When her best friend disappears, Lexi knows the time for hiding is over. The fireshapers might be more powerful, but Lexi’s not one to abandon a friend. It will take everything she’s got to save them both from the flames.

Thoughts on Stolen Magic

This urban fantasy presents an entire universe set with new rules, familiar creatures and a landscape divided into those who have the power… and those that don’t. Toss in a thief, a hidden shifter and a mystery wrapped in red tape and you’ve got an interesting story that teases Gods and sets the stage for a captivating adventure.

  • Fast paced.
  • Her powers are enviable, though rather secret.
  • World building.
  • Alberto. Enough says.


  • A few too many questions left.
  • Jake is whiplash volatile with his emotions.
